Health Questions & Answers



I recently moved from Lansing Michigan to Indiana. I was so busy getting my house in order that I didn't put flea meds on them. The dog and cats have fleas. I use a well known flea product but doesn't seem to work.

Dear Eileen,

Fleas can develop resistance to certain chemicals. You might need to try a different brand. You might also consider treating your house so there are fewer fleas present that can bite your pets.

After having been bitten, some pets will develop a flea allergy. Then even only one flea bite will start the allergy cascade. DERMA-IONX can help with the allergy response. After you get rid of the fleas make sure you check a stool sample. Pets can acquire tapeworms after having had fleas. The tapeworms contribute to poor skin and coat. I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 beside DERMA-IONX to respond to the allergy.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,
